Wyoming Insurers That Provide Fraud Tips Shielded From Lawsuits

November 22, 2010

Wyoming’s Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee has endorsed a draft fraud bill that would provide insurers from civil liability for furnishing information relating to insurance fraud and unfair trade practices to law enforcement agencies.

According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, law enforcement agencies now must obtain subpoenas before receiving case material from insurers. The bill draft protects insurers from civil liability, and would preclude the burden of obtaining a subpoena, the Coalition explained.

The act is scheduled to take effect July 1, 2011.
